We returned again and were not disappointed the accommodation was well maintained and the additional touches of providing water and wine as a welcome gift was much appreciated. We were also pleased with the beach towels provided. We have booked again for 6 weeks in the winter and cant wait to return

Just got back from our 2 weeks at the El Guarapo, our room no 44 was excellent, 2 bedrooms with seaview and very clean. The room was nicely presented with a splash of accent coulourin alll rooms and African theme pictures/carvings. The apartment also had a touch of modern design fetures (ikea) with flat screen tv, with british channels. We had upgraded and got beach towels, TV remote, WiFi, water and wine. The room was cleaned regually and towels/sheets changed. We fouund NO ants, cockroachs etc ! The El Guarapo was very wellmaintained and we often saw the maintance man with a pot of white paint or fixing things, the gardener was planting, pruning and the whole place was of a very hih standard. The staff 'Hana' was friendly and helpful. Thank you to all at the El Guarapo well done

Room Tip: Room 44 great views

Booked through Midlands Co-op Travel. Target budget £1500 including parking, target reached.

Spec of apartments as stated, pool area acceptable.

Reception and pool bar very relaxed.

Location very useful for town.

Location is windy, as most of the Island.

Complex needs general updating.

Ant problem hard to keep under control as apartment has not had a deep clean or insecticide treatment.

Popping cacti was interesting.

Gaps around doors, had to deal with bed 2 balcony door gaps to prevent 4 year old daughter getting creeps in the night as previous nights.

However proximity to beaches and main drag excellent and local parks particularly good for families.

Would stay again but not soon

First time visitors and will definitely be returning. We were on the ground floor in the gardens, a lovely setting. The apartment was clean, spacious and had modern comfortable lounge furniture, although the bedspreads were very stiff and possessed a life of their own !!! The bed sheets were changed after 8 days ( a strange period ) which I think should be twice a week, especially in the hotter months. There were some cockroaches but the spray and floor mopping by the cleaners dealt efficiently with them, this is after all Lanzarote and cockroaches are just part of the package.
The complex is quiet and relaxing but for more life the resort centre is only a few minutes walk away as is the coastal walkway ( parts of which they are currently repairing / replacing ).
The onsite restaurant run by Antonio is small but cosy. The food is excellent at a VERY competitive price, we had a full English breakfast every morning ( except Tuesday when it is closed ) and found it to be one of the best in resort. Antonio’s Lamb, Pork and Chateaubriand are an experience not to be missed.
All the staff were friendly and helpful although the cover on reception could be a problem for some guests arriving or departing, from memory opening hours were Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 0900 – 1300 and 1600 – 1900. Wednesday, Friday and Sunday 0900 – 1300. Saturday closed all day.
All in all a lovely relaxing place to holiday at a reasonable price.

We have just come back from El Guarpo and this is our 3rd visit in 3 yrs. We go every February and love the apartments and the resort. The apartments are clean and very spacious. We have stayed in both the apartments on the ground floor and on the 2nd floor and loved them both. The restaurant on the site is good value for money and the food is delicious. We have already booked for next year as they soon get booked up. The resort is only a short walk and there is a lovely bar only a short walk to the sea front where you can watch the sun go down with a glass of wine.

We stayed here for a week and having stayed here before we were not suprised with anything that we got, it was everything we needed ! The apartments are basic and clean, the bar is reasonable and the food plentiful. One reviewer mentioned a lack of entertainment and its for the older traveller, but I would like to clarify something, there are ALOT of long stay rentals over the winter at guarapo which are older travellers, although if you go to any of the canaries in the winter months there would be a majority to the older generation. Although a great thing about that is that they are quiet and we can play music round the pool because they can't hear us! Thats a joke....just enjoy, read my other reviews of these fantastic apartments for more info.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent and the same

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your comments, these are very important for us.

Certainly in winter there are a lot of old travellers, they are repeat customers who visit us since many years ago, and that is our satisfaction, They feel very happy here.

Our main target is your enjoyment and relaxing in your holidays.

Thanks very much.

One week at Guarapo Apartments - what a tonic! We wanted a break from the UK winter on a budget and that's what we got. It would have been nice to have a sea view but you don't get that on the ground floor or for the kind of dollar we were paying. The other occupants were mainly older couples often staying for weeks and because many are returnees, I guess, they do learn which are the best rooms. Ours was perfectly adequate - without being in anyway luxurious. It was on the ground floor. No cockroaches or burglars although we were careful. There were lots of cats and a few flies but not really more than you might experience at home. The pool and pool side area was very pleasant and often sheltered from the wind. The pool is not heated but of a reasonable size. We swam most days.

The best thing about the Guarapo is the location. A short stroll down to the beach, the supermarket, shops and restaurants, yet it's a haven of peace and tranquility and mostly what we were looking for.

The compromises - if you like to spend 15 minutes under a hot power shower you'll be disappointed. The shower was a bit feeble and had a tendency to run out of hot water especially if we showered immediately after each other. We learnt not to and it wasn't much of a compromise given that Lanzarote only has 10 days rain a year, so water is probably at a premium! Because we did mostly self-cater, we also found the range of kitchen utensils a bit limited but again that's a minor nit-pick.

Overall, we'd say the Guarapo is a great place to unwind on a budget for those who enjoy a quiet location within easy reach of all facilities.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views but ground floors easier access.
